as it does today in which very important election held in israel or following the inaugural of president obama and the testimony of secretary clinton. that's a con fluns of events unimaginable, but here it is. does this country seem to be projecting a certain knowledge of its interests and a clear set of policies that make sense to the rest of the world whether it be the middle east, north africa, europe, or asia? >> the government is delusional with issues related to islamist, islamist supremists. we had told again and again that the muslim brotherhood are different than al-qaeda. they are moderates. they are evolved. they are people we can work with. yet, look at the bottom line here. who wants the blind shake back? the demands being made again and again for the release of the terrorist we convicted in the 1990s of atrocities against the united states. the brotherhood and al-qaeda wants him back. what does the brotherhood do as soon as they get into power? impose sharia, what they said they would do and what al-qaeda wants to do. lou: at the very same time while egypt is in increasingl
in november when the election was framed on social issues, they won't think about this. we are trying to use the kids, lack of a better term, as the national props why the politicians are stealing the money. my generation is going to inherit so much money that we never had a chance to earn. we have to pay that off through working extra hours and standard of living will be lower because of that. neil: your generation, guys like your age and my daughter's age or you're a little older than those showcased today, but not a lot older. you are their big brothers and sisters, and you are trying to send a message to the president that, look, this is something that bears attention as well. when you say that, and you just point out that a lot of young people don't agree with that, they like this president, they don't seem to be focused on this spending, what's that say about your generation? >> i think my generation has been not educated properly, first of all, but, also, my generation does not care about the issues, and they are going to have to face a hard reality soon. when they graduate college, t
everything he ran on, and that's why he won this election by such a big margin over mitt romney. voters elected barack obama to a second term knowing what they were going to get, and everything he talkedded about today, putting people back to work, dwetting the economy back on track for a fair shot. immigration reform, reduction in gun violence, climate change, education, all of those things are what he campaigned on and talked about it in a way showing he has hope, stillments change, but he understands to bring the country forward, he has to do it in a non-traditional way like the campaign. gerri: justin, do you agree? the same old same old? same push, same rhetoric, same positions? >> a different barack obama than in 2004 as rich mentioned than 2008. this is not the post partisan barack obama, but one laying down a marker expanding -- explaning the vision for progressive government, not even a nod whatsoever todd fact that the american people elected republicans to control the people's house, the house of representatives, no nod to the fact there needs to be bipartisan at all whatsoev
. all you have to worry about is the person elected the altar. the woman behind this new business, even when they say it's not, it's always about "money." all right. we start with the first to announce plans on how exactly it hopes to pay for obamacare. a little bit surprising. republican arizona governor says that the tax increase interstate is the answer. the governor proposing a new hospital provided tax, and this is on topple all the taxes we were just three weeks ago. a number of experts and even some hospitals are on board with the governor's new tax hike. with me now is one of them. from the university of arizona public health policy and management professor. welcome to the show. do you think this is a good idea? >> good evening. i think that for arizona this is a very novel and innovative approach to solving a particularly difficult dilemma in getting the 20 percent of arizona is a don't have health insurance coverage. this will get as part way there through medicaid expansion. melissa: stopping about maybe as 6 percent tax. the exact number is not laid out the look to cover the
. to hithe legislature, letting tm know where he stand on it. lou: as you should, you are an elected official as well as sheriff of the county. >> correct, being sheriff is a unique position, only elected law enforcement official in the country. lou: and the sheriffs play a vital role in law enforcement, most people know and are appreciative of. you have expressed concerned about the executive orders of the president, you have concerns about number 6, says public a letter from atf to federally licensed gun dealers providing guidance on how to run background checks on private sellers, they were pretty well prepared if are that letter, weren't they? >> i believe so, that will require a lot more explanation on their part. if that indicates that they are pursuing, prohibiting private sale and transfer, among private parties it will be interesting how they approach that. lou: this is a letter from the justice department, saying, to all who hold licenses, federal firearm licenses, that they are going to be engaged in providing background checks, going to the national background check system of the
to solve our problems. this is inauguration day, much like election day after all the votes are tallied and everyone has a mullen of togetherness, showing a willingness to work together. you still have a very divided washington and washington that is trying to wade through these problems with two very different gun and philosophies, two very different ideas on how to achieve success. lori: the president digging in. you mentioned the philosophy. this proposal being floated about. >> right. this is at three day proposal. three months proposal. excuse me. republicans will vote on it in a few days in the house. it has not gone completely shut down, so we may get at three month extension of the debt ceiling. extending that three months republicans are asking that congress pass a budget to be taken political aim at the u.s. senate because in the u.s. senate they have not passed a budget in a few years. with that they get democrats on the record and the senate with a budget which is something that had been hoping to do politically. they don't have any spending cuts as part of this. another par
in this country. he promised before the election board that after the election you start to do something. he has this whole public-relations -- relation operation financed to a mere blumberg of new york that was ready to swing into action. what newtown gave him was an excuse to do what they wanted to do for some time, which is to launch a full breath attack on the second amendment, and that is what they're doing door regardless of what the president claims. you know, lou, we had a representative at the meeting with vice-president biden. before those meetings everyone was sure that we, the administration, enter these with an open mind. we got to the meeting, and one of the first things the vice-president said was he in the president had very strong feelings about firearms that are going to proceed regardless of what anyone else thought. they stated their view. we knew what it would be. the problem was that these meetings or asking the wrong question. they were saying, what can we do about guns when they should have been saying to what can we do to protect our children. that is a very different qu
, the election rally votes needed to become president, he got the election right, down to final electoral vote. he made a mockery of those invisible romney voters. prove could them wrong, suddenly of it nate the great, and a campaign stat star of born, a polling jeanious genius. he leveraged that brand with issues that might or might not have anything to do with that brand, sort of like me some moving into the health caresphere. republicans say this confirms how clueless t president is, nate silver writing, how right the president is, mr. numbers explains if you do get run away spending on medicare, social security, and medicaid under control, spending is suddenly not a problem. to david stockman who is not quite convinced, ronald reagan former budget director, joining he now, we would like to spend extra time with david, like a sponge i try to soak in all his smarts, what do you make of what nate said. >> he has a lot of statistics, but it does not capture all of the things by any means, i say no, i want to re reference backo what ronald reagan phased in 1981, and where we've drifted for 30 y
of those folks there is lost. that, the president won election. you could even go so far he won the right to raise taxes on the rich. he didn't get a pass, nor did washington get a pass on addressing underlying spending. it almost seemedas if they're reading into the election that, and it worries me. should i be worried? >> you should be worried. more importantly the american people should be worried. when i watch the president's second term unfold, i feel like i'm watching an episode of laugh-in or "saturday night live." because, neil as you point out, every other day we hear from the credit rating agencies, that debt and spending is threatening the future of america and our credit rating and our ability to continue to lend money to the world, right? and we hear from corporate america. joe has just made the case for small business owners. and corporate america is sitting atop of almost $2 trillion in cash, because everybody is afraid. they don't know where this train wreck of a second administration is going. and back to the president. he sat there in fiscal cliff negotiations with speak
. twenty democrats are up for election in 2014. half of them should not be coming back of the continue to vote with obama on tax and spend crazy debt policies which is what they have been doing. i think it is very important for the american people to see what the senate has not done and to force them to act but that. gerri: you sure can't act -- argue with that. the senate has not passed a budget and 1,361 days. let me get a comment. it would stop pay to members of congress if they don't do some of these things, if they don't get a budget resolution. you in favor of that? >> i think it's a good idea for two reasons. senators have not been doing democratic leaders have not been doing their job for a long time. they should not get paid. if they're not willing to do it, the senate should vote them out of positions. also, it gives the attention of average americans who don't know if they have been watching the establishment press that the senate has not passed a budget. they don't know that the president has never gotten a budget in on time in the once he does to are not serious. and so we
the election results, but your money is doing well. and "varney & company" is about to begin. >> new funds in the tech world, it's not apple. you're used to long lines outside apple stores and people clamoring to get apple's latest version of the smart phone or tablet. the new buzz out there is samsung, not apple. apple-like hype is building for the samsung galaxy smart phone, a bigger screen, faster speed, longer lasting battery. and launched in may, it was considered the first to meet or exceed. you keep hearing, apple doesn't meet cool anymore, that's samsung. and i wonder if apple is below 500. where are we? >> and the traders are not getting in and out. right at the 498 mark, not far off from 500. i can tell you that ubs says the next 100 point move should be to the upside. you're right, it really hasn't been doing too much. stuart: and the s&p 500, they're at a five-year high and people down there are happy, aren't they. >> they are, right? they're back to the pre-the financial crisis and and then you sell, your overbought. stuart: cheer up, people, there's good news out there. the m
in the last election. but all of a sudden -- all this other stuff -- i just don't know. >> look, the government is a bad investor. they are bad in adventure capitalism. what we have seen is the center of gravity that has moved more to the left of the last five and 10 years, much more than in 2000 when bill clinton was president. neil: caroline, to your point -- the democrats had a good showing minus the house and we will see more of that? >> of course we are. it's a good investment whether it's government or private. >> solar will take those and double those every two years. i'm saving up for that chevy boldly we love so much hybrid cars. >> 2% of our energy use. it's been going up for the past decade. neil: if you can say that, caroline, you can say anything. from the guys that brought you three minus, a demand for a raise for a job well done. maybe their heads are stuck [ male announcer ] where do you turn for legal matters? at legalzoom, we've created a better place to handle your legal needs. maybe you have questions about incorporating a business you'd like to start. or que

strongly in the 2010 midterm elections, he came back and gave a state of the union, a couple months later and said, just as susan did, we need to save more because we need more money for investments of the this is the way the president governor earns. he is a tax-and-spend liberal of the old school and i think it's, entirely clear that he could ask for moreaxes. melissa: i feel like i'm going insane here because i feel like there was some sort of conversation about, is is going to be balanced approa. we'll raise taxes. if republicans will give on that we'll go ahead and cut spending. i feel like we have raised taxes and now we'll raise even more taxes and wee still spending like drunken sailors. susan, am i wrong. >> we're not spending like drunken sailers. melissa: we're not? 16 trillion dollar debt. >> 11 trillion he inherited. melissa: that is fine. everyone is at fault. everyone contributed to to this we are in dire straits. we are broke. everyone is at fault. no one is fixing it. >> well, and he is trying to fix it. that is why $4 trillion total reduction if they get to that number,

industry and the auto comeback, particularly ahead of the election, listen, the government backs out of these auto loans, through the roof and if you can knock the competitive american cars down and maybe deliberately trying to stop americans from tying toyotas. the flip side, boeing is our largest exporter, it seems, don't drive this car, but fly this plane. charles: and some are reaching out. >> replace the lithium batteries, they cause fires in cell phone and laptops. >> and barack obama tells congress to pass an assault weapons ban and the national rifle association calls it the fight of the century and added 250,000 new members the pro gun organization now has well over 4 million members. and fbi says it's conducted 2.8 million background checks just in the month of december, that's a record. there's a nationwide run on guns, gun manufacturers in fact cannot keep up with demand. at the top of the hour, n.r.a. president david keeene, we'll have to ask him about the president's push for gun control. the results of the president's proposals ban on assault weapons, gone stocks surgi

transition to happen and happen seamlessly. we needed the election to be past here. we needed the start to the fiscal cliff resolution. all of those things are starting to happen. confidence is growing. unemployment is ticking down. so i think it's more a gradual shift. >> right. one of the interesting things about morgan stanley is a couple years ago people were actually predicting your demise, like morgan stanley would not be there, it would have to merge, it didn't have the earnings power. i guess this is proof positive that that wasn't right, that you guys can remain independent. you see yourselves independent in the future? >> absolutely. we're -- i don't know what our market cap is today, but 40 billionish -- >> right. >> -- type company. we're now a very large and very connected global institution. >> right. and you're still either number one or number two in m&a which is interesting. a lot of people thought in order to score these m&a deals you would need a commercial bank attached. you don't obviously. you don't even have to lend that much money you do in these deals. the quest
would week after the election news see the state with the highest poverty rate in the nation is california even higher than the district of columbia. that should be a warning to progressives who maintain the big government model is the path of to prosperity. we argue it is the opposite. texas is a model of how america could be better ride and more prosperity with less government. john: texas gained more than 1 million jobs by paul krugman says in the "new york times" what is of a texas miracle? the employee rate was eight-point to%. that is not great but california was 11.8%. >> they had over 10 percent unemployment every month of brock obamacare presidency until last november. john: still 3 percent higher than texas. >> higher than the national average every month since 1980. john: regulation? >> a huge difference. it was so bad in california the democrats allowed the lot to be passed that sought to find the cost of regulations on small business. arnold schwarzenegger was so embarrassed he did not wanted to come out. be average cost is $133,000 per year with. the legislature

. the american people reacted and reacted almost instantly in those of a term elections. in 1994 in the reaction to that assault weapons ban is likely vivid in the memories of senator reid to a perhaps the speaker as well. the speaker's spokesman said if the senate does pass an assault weapons ban the house will take a look at it, but if he does bring it up it would be the third time this year that the speaker would violate the rule requiring him to have at least 50 percent support from his or her own caucus before bringing legislation to the floor. to be clear, he faces an important source. should senator reid decide to send legislation his way, he has a very important ramifications, and it is important to decide just which party he is heading up because he is at the forefront of what is now a fight on taxes, spending, the size of government cut debt, and no gun-control. it appears to be a fight for the very soul of the republican party. the nra calls the president and its lead is typical. the president calls the nra cowardly. why does this argument matter? the "a-team" will be here to talk abo
